About Me


walk the Himalayas


I'm that kind of people able to cool Milkybar bars using car windows, ask for "two pints of Guinnes and an ass towel" instead of "two pints of Guinnes and an Ashtray", and have fun with some ganbrothas because they thought that i speak like "Borat".

Facebook name: rubinho de los bosques.

Sometimes i think that Blake Edwards wrote my whole life.
I hope that Mancini will write the score.

I work as an Associate Creative Director for advertising companies.

I've lived in Barcelona for long, but i'm from Galicia, the Northwest of Spain. No bullfighters there, nor paella. We have rain, ocean, rain, excellent liquors called "orujos", bagpipes and rain.

After Barcelona, i moved to Boulder, Colorado, but spending most on the time on the road, shooting commercials between LA, London and NYC.

After that, i moved to Goteborg, Sweden.
Now i'm in Shanghai. We'll see what's next.

I love rain. But Snow is better.


Repeat "Sugarplum Fairy" three times, and then picture yourself like a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

When i grow up, i want to be a Goonie.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i'm just a beginner, even after few years of been a couchsurfer. I hosted people in Barcelona, when i was living there, and also in my little studio in Auckland City, New Zealand. We could call the last one as Groundsurfing or airmettresssurfing. I also had met travelers of all over the world, just for having fun while traveling.
Great moments and great people, in every one case.

Just universal questions like: Who we are?, where we are going? and why do we always announce that we´re going to the toilet when we are going to the toilet?
